Smitten by the beauty of Shillong during his visit, Maharaja Bir Bikram Manikya, the then Maharaja of Tripura built a summer retreat in the alpine hills of the region. Today, it’s Tripura Castle, a heritage hotel promising stunning views of the luscious pine trees and lofty hills. The 9-acre property is home to 35 wooden-furbished rooms and 3 independent wooden cottages.

The heritage property beautifully amalgamates the old Assam-style architecture with a twist of modernity. The walls engraved with aeons of history still exude regality. At Tripura Castle, you can choose to stay in one of the three wings —The Heritage Wing, The Forest Wing and the Valley Wing.

The Heritage Wing has rooms and cottages that take you back to the times of Maharajas and Maharanis. Replete with mahogany beds and brass fire chimneys, these rooms face beautiful rose gardens. In fact, the great Rabindranath Tagore also stayed at the Heritage Wing during his visits to Tripura.

The Valley Wing has beautifully-decorated rooms offering views of Meghalaya’s awe-inspiring valleys. And the Forest Wing is especially for nature lovers and the recluse who can’t have enough of Shillong’s lush green pine forests. Wake up to the chirping of birds and the mountain dew gently falling on your window.
